We moved from a house to a downtown apartment last year and needed a way to compost our food scraps but could hardly bring our composter with us ... We are extremely pleased with the service.  It is one of those rare services that 'just works.'

- John Carter, Software Engineer

Rather than trucked to a landfill, your kitchen waste is pedaled to Community Composting Centers throughout a network of local partners, including:

Porters Community Farm · Opus Garden · Highlands Presbyterian Center · Tempo Bistro to Go · Cymply Fresh Cafe · Center for Innovation & Economic Development
